Notre Dame Fighting Irish at USC Trojans
The only thing standing in the way now is rival Southern California. The Fighting Irish will visit the Trojans with a National Championship shot on the line Saturday night.
Florida Gators at Florida State Seminoles
The Gators will not have a chance at the SEC championship game after losing to Georgia on Oct. 27 but can sit back and watch everyone else pick each other off. Florida State has already clinched its spot in the ACC championship game against Georgia Tech on Dec. 1, but is still trying to make voters forget about a lackluster performance in their lone setback at North Carolina State on Oct. 6. Florida State has taken the last two meetings with Florida.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Georgia Bulldogs
Bitter rivals with a lot to look forward to clash in Athenson Saturday when No. 3 Georgia hosts Georgia Tech. The Bulldogs suddenly have aclear path to the national championship game after last Saturday’s upsets.
Michigan Wolverines at Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio State is not eligible for the postseason this year. That means no Big Ten championship game and no BCS bowl at the end for a team that has yet to take a loss. The annual showdown with Michigan on Saturday in Columbus is big enough with the postseason still on the table, but this year the 20th-ranked Wolverines represent the Super Bowl for Ohio State.
Oklahoma State Cowboys at Oklahoma Sooners Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will try to keep their Big 12 title hopes alive when they meet in Norman on Saturday in the Bedlam game. Oklahoma State snapped a nine-game losing streak to Oklahoma with a 44-10 victory last season.
Stanford Cardinal at UCLA Bruins
The comeback season for UCLA football has already included wins over three ranked teams and a spot in the Pac-12 title game. The 16th-ranked Bruins are hoping their high-powered offense still has a few more wins in it.
Buffalo Bills at Indianapolis Colts
Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts had their winning streak come to an end in embarrassing fashion at New England last Sunday. How they bounce back from that will determine if the Colts are set to become a playoff team.
Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
If the conference-leading Atlanta Falcons hope to continue their winning ways, they'll have to derail one of the hottest teams in the league when they visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a matchup of the top two clubs in the NFC South on Sunday.
St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals
It does not seem all that long ago that the Arizona Cardinals were the talk of the NFL after winning their first four games. Things have not gone as well over the last seven weeks. The Cardinals will be looking to snap a six-game slide when they host the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
Green Bay Packers at New York Giants
The past two Super Bowl champions will square off when the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers try to protect their division title hopes Sunday night at MetLife Stadium. The Giants are coming off a bye week and have lost two straight, but they're still lead the mediocre NFC East.
